Pakistán - Mining company refuses to recognise union (2013)

The Duddar Mineral Development Company Labour Union was registered on 23 September 2012. As per legal procedure, the union submitted its “Charter of Demands” to the management of MMC Duddar Mine for negotiation. However, management refuses to recognise the representative and lawful character of the union. Instead union members and leaders have been harassed. When the mine workers instigated a strike, following the legal procedure, they secured a pay rise and improved working hours. However, management still refuses to recognise the union as the workers’ representative.
